March 24, 2009 - PRLog -- Joan Brennan, an experienced educator who invented the Reading Focus Card, says that the tool was developed over a period of several years. The first prototype of the tool actually was created during a remedial reading session with a young student. The device promotes:
• left-to-right eye movement
• isolation of lines of text
• better focus that increases concentration, reading comprehension and retention
• accuracy in column addition, long division, or any other placeholder work

The various features of the tool can help provide reading comfort and/or emphasis when needed. The reading device also addresses the needs of different learning styles.

In May of 2007, a focus study of the Reading Focus Card was conducted in a St. Louis school. It was found that:
• Approximately 10% of the students with no known or diagnosed learning/reading disabilities benefited in some way from using the Reading Focus Card.
• In addition, 90% of the students diagnosed with learning disabilities (such as ADD, ADHD, and dyslexia) experienced strong improvement in the quality of their reading focus and comprehension when using the Reading Focus Card.
The school’s special education teacher was quite impressed with the immediate results achieved for those ADD/ADHD-challenged students who used the tool.

The Reading Focus Card is non-invasive and inexpensive. It can be used together with prescribed medications. The inventor has used the tool successfully with students, especially with those who sometimes have "forgotten" their medication before coming to school. In fact, that is how the Reading Focus Card was born.

The Reading Focus Card is best utilized with regular-sized, paperback books or with large volumes having two columns of printed text on a page (as with social studies, some science, and other content books.) The tool also promotes accurate test taking when machine-scored answer sheets are used.

Because those with attention deficiencies often have issues with organization, loss of possessions, etc., this tool can be stored on a loose-leaf binder ring to prevent loss. The Reading Focus Card can also be placed in any text as a bookmark when not in use. Should loss occur, however, repurchase is not prohibitive because of the tool’s reasonable price ($7.95 each).

The Reading Focus Card is definitely a product every person challenged with focusing issues shouldn’t live without!
